I parked shortly before the Alpage de la Neuve in a bend where there is plenty of room (see map). From there, I followed the forest road passing in front of the aforementioned pasture and I continued until the road which leads to the pasture of Montbrion. I took the path that goes up the small valley at the back of the pasture and I arrived just above the Plan de Châtel. From there, you will go up towards the Folly. At a little less than a kilometer, I arrived at the crossroads of two paths. If you take a left, you go straight up to Folly, but I preferred to take you up from the north.

The effort is worth it, because there is a superb view of the lake and the Alps. Take care when you go along the summit because on your right the side of the mountain is steep!
